Supply Chain (Former Employee), Dallas, TX – December 18, 2014
Pros: week off during christmas holidays, 9/80 schedule, benefits
Cons: raises are small.
Come in each morning and printed off the work that came in over night. Management is not the ones to look over your shoulder. You learned your job and management expected you to do it without supervision. My co-workers were the best. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping customers when they needed help.
Senior Electrical Engineer (Current Employee), Tucson, AZ – December 17, 2014
Pros: job security as long as your job performance is good
Cons: benefits and raises keep getting scaled back every year
I enjoy the work I do and have had the pleasure of working with some very good people through the years. My favorite task was the first task. I had the good fortune of working under a great mentor who taught the fellow group of 4 new hires the ins and outs of FPGA design.
In recent years, there is a tendency to have way too much management. This results – more... in a lot of overhead that is wasteful and disheartening.
At this point in my career, I would like to explore other opportunities. I've spent 16 years at Raytheon, and it's time to move on. – less
Production Associate (Current Employee), El Paso – December 15, 2014
Pros: great experience
Cons: not so willing to pay more
Raytheon is a great place to work if you love doing hands on things. Raytheon is a company that works on patriot equipment. Raytheon is also a great place to start a career and gain a lot of experience. The only hard part at work would be meeting dead lines on getting equipment done, and the best part is being at work I enjoy what I do at Raytheon.

Production control Planner (Former Employee), Sudbury, MA – December 4, 2014
Since I left Raytheon in 2002 I do not have any valid comments to make. Raytheon has a union so I had to adapt to not handling material directly. That is a fine line sometimes.
I had the opportunity to explore a few different facets of Production Control while there, from pushing purchased material through the inspection process to stores to participating – more... in Material Configuration Control Board (MCCB) meetings to working closely with Test Equipment engineers designing and building prototypes. – less
Software Test Engineer (Current Employee), Aurora, CO – December 1, 2014
Typical work day isn't bad, flex hours are great. Some of the management is too involved with employees on a personal level, other parts of management treat you as a replaceable number. Co-workers are great and is what keeps your sanity, at this company.
Principal Training & Development Specialist (Former Employee), Fort Devens, MA – November 24, 2014
It is a very large defense company. Employees are a number in the system. It has the typical benefits of a large organization as well as the typical negatives. As an offsite employee on a military contract, there was little interaction with corporate office. It was more who you know than how well you can do your job. Management did not manage and were – more... hired not due to their qualifications. – less
